Are Black Mystery Snails plant eaters?

I am setting up a Brazilian biotope aquarium and I am in search of a snail for the tank. It seems that the Black mystery snail is from Brazil, but it sounds like they eat plants? I have a heavily planted tank so I don't want a snail that will kill them.

Advice for anyone new to the hobby: Do your research!! Before you do anything to your aquarium, take some time to research it. It has made a huge difference for me

S.A. Flooded Jungle (20 gallon)
A heavily planted tank. Inhabitants include: 7 Lemon Tetra, 1 Whiptail Catfish, and MTS.
